LoveReading Says

Captivating and astonishing… from cover to cover ‘Devotion’ prods, pokes and provokes. This is quite simply a book to make you think (possibly until your thoughts combust). The contents page alone sets a uniqueness alert buzzing and quivering. Dr Finlay Logan, a criminal psychologist is about to assess a girl who could be classed as a religious terrorist, he however, is a damaged, broken man himself. Ros Barber has the most touching and expressive way with words, they somehow flow together to create a beautiful yet penetrating structure, which shifts and reconstructs itself as you read. Italics are used to denote speech, creating a feeling of hearing a conversation in your head, it’s almost as though you are trespassing on inner most private thoughts, that you shouldn't be privy to. At times this is an uncomfortable, difficult and startling read, it is also lyrical and haunting and fascinating. Staggeringly original, the storyline blends with science and conjecture, creating a penetrating read that is not to be missed.
